A Note from Michael

I’m optimistic…

Several guys have been working on our live stream for this next Sunday and I think it will go well… I think. We learn something each week about how we can do it better, so this week should be the best yet.

If you are sheltering at home, please know we will live stream the adult Bible Class at 9am (Jim Klein teaching James) and worship at 10:15am.

This Sunday is our Mission Sunday. I pray everyone has been considering how they can be most generous, either with a one-time gift or a gift spread out over several months. Our biggest target is about raising funds to send a shipping container with 10,000 Bibles to Nicaragua along with other needed material to bless the churches there. I just know God will bless us… He always does.

Bible Classes Begin again… Today we will enjoy Benny Baker teaching a combined class for adults, teens, and older elementary students. There will be a class downstairs for 1st grade and younger.

Beginning November 1… There will be an adult class taught by Jim Klein as we study James. The teen class begins with Christian teaching in the youth barn, and a full set of classes for elementary and younger students downstairs. The teens and all the younger kids will begin by gathering for a devotional before going to their separate classes.

A Message from Dale Herboldt

Heart Beats from the Ranch:

As the newest face among this congregation’s elders, let me begin by saying; keeping connected and sharing encouragement is a big part of my focus. I also treasure the importance placed on “unity” by writers of the new testament.

Col. 3:12-14  “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourself with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity” 

I say this knowing we are in an election year and our nation faces a real and growing problem of division and divisiveness that threatens the peace and stability of so many communities. It is heartbreaking to see this kind of behavior.

How easy it would be for us to join in the politics of polarization and find ourselves trying to shout down the other side. Political unrest by nature draws lines, makes distinctions and pronounces judgements it even encourages violence in some cases.

Jesus cuts across lines, breaks down barriers and offers grace! Jesus honored the dignity of each person whether he agreed with them or not. Anyone, even a half-breed with five husbands, or a thief on a cross was welcome to be a part of his kingdom. The gospel of Jesus was not primarily a political platform, it was however a platform to change hearts and offer hope. Jewish communities and gentiles alike were attracted to the way Christians cared for each other and devoted themselves to those in need, though they were individuals they acted as one, and that impressed honest hearts! Let us hold onto that mark of identity as we face such turbulent times of unrest and seek to preserve the unity of God’s people.

DH

Courage for Uncertain Times

Part 4:
“If You Don’t Know Who You Are Then You Will NOT Know What To Fear”

by Michael Lewis

October 18, 2020

PRINT MICHAEL’S HANDOUT

Joshua 4

Hear this: God knows our lack of  bravery  is often due to a lack of  memory .

Hear this: God knows defeating fear requires memories of  courage .

Hear this: God gives us  memorials  so we might remember great acts of courage.

Boulder Believers:

  1. Boulder believers take courage from the intentional  memory  of God’s story.
  2. Boulder believers recognize that other believers also need the blessings of your  memories .
  3. That’s why God gives us  memorials .
